PPRuNe Forums Thread Wiki: Which Aerodrome Mk III
Please read: This is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread. You may edit the Wiki once you have been a member for 90 days and have made 90 posts.
 
Last edit by: nvubu
Here is a read only link to the Aerodrome Database - WhichAerodrome.xlsx. Up to date as of 1/5/2019. Catching up slowly - up to May 2019 now (Mar 2020).

Here are some "rules" for Which Aerodrome. These are based upon the original suggestions from the very first thread, and have a few additions. Also please be patient as when you are active others may be asleep.
  • A historic picture of an aerodrome will be posted. Newer pictures are allowed but the theme here is to compare/contrast old with new as well as identifying aerodromes which no longer exist.
  • The person who correctly identifies it will be declared the 'winner' by the original poster.
  • That winner shall either post another challenge or declare the floor open. Anyone may then post the next challenge.
  • If the winner of the challenge does not respond to the notification of their success within 48 hours, an Open house can be declared when there is consensus between multiple other posters which are on line.
  • When the poster of a challenge does not respond within 48 hours of a posted answer, this poster can be declared winner if the answer is considered correct in a consensus of multiple other posters.
  • If Open House is declared, regular posters should not jump in immediately, but time should be given for those who are not great at naming the correct location as they may have some good images.
  • There will only be one challenge running at a time.
  • Try to use elderly photos and not Google Earth, Zoom Earth or any other search engine, pics
  • Try to post images that are not already present on internet, as Google Image Search will find them if they are.
  • Personal photos are acceptable as they show the aerodrome as it is now.
  • When confirming the correct location, the location and winner should be stated to negate any deletion of posts.
  • Please don't delete your posts, let everyone see your successes, failures and challenges.
Anyone can edit it so long as they have been here for 90 days with 90 posts. Let's get consensus before changing and not go crazy Thanks to Self Loading Bear for suggesting that we use a wiki. Which Aerodrome I Which Aerodrome II nvubu.

Are those Stearmans? A Naval Air Station somewhere. Floyd Bennett, Pensacola?

Edit: NOT Floyd Bennett; interesting site to browse through is http://www.airfields-freeman.com/index.htm

It is USA but not Florida. They are Stearmans.

Not a NAS and not WWI but you are both along the right lines

Did our visual circuits at Dade-Collier in 1997 with a Carnival A300 out of FLL. One of our Brit. pilots asked where the fire cover was. The reply from the training captain was "about 30 miles away so don't F**k Up"

aNother incidence: there is a C54 "stuck" at Douglas for some years. Something nefarious, I believe, drug smugling or something in the background. Anyway it's all been fixed and should fly again soon.
Russ SMOKEON has control

I sometimes get the same problem which disappears when I log in - I suspect its the method the poster sues to post the image. You can link the image to a picture uploaded to your PPRuNe profile or to another webisite. I always use the former but maybe some external links only become active on login to PPRuNe

I often get a similar problem with photos that Heathrow Harry posts. On my house computer I have no problems seeing the photos. On my iPad - nothing ! Not being “computer savvy”, I have no idea why this should be so.

Interesting..

the PPRuNe Album function allows two methods of posting a picture one is URL-based (below)




and the other is BB (Bulletin Board) based (below)




can people see both? or not??

I can see both. I always post pics that I'm hosting eleswhere - normally on my One-Drive.


Is that the standard size of the PPRuNe album?

How about Seeb aka Muscat?
Not been there since 1979 but it looks about right.
Actually Not. GE shows all the desert now built on.

Dixi - they're illustrations from last week (Nouakchott Airport, Mauritania) to test the image posting - Currently it's Open House

Size seems to be very variable on PPRuNe - maybe related to the original image size and pixel density - occasionally people manage to post VAST pictures by error
